  • The Problem
  • Navi Mumbai ( New Bombay), a satellite township to Bombay with its broad roads and beautiful railway stations is also home to thousands of migrants who have come to this city in search of employment. They live in small shanties put on the side of roads, under flyovers and along railway tracks. These areas have no sanitation and drinking water facilities. Diseases like T.B., Malaria, etc are common and the worst sufferers are the children.

      Sickness among children and poverty of parents force thousands of children to drop out of school     even before they are 10 years old

      Hundreds of children are forced to work 10 to 12 hours a day to support their families

      Women and young girls face harassment and abuse at home and in the community

      Girls as young as 14 and 15 years are forced into marriage due to social and cultural pressures
